Cooperative Networks: The Mobile Tethering Game

Mihai Constantinescu, Ertan Onur, Harry Bouwman, Mark de Reuver, Yunus Durmus (Eds.), Cooperative Networks: The Mobile Tethering Game, ACM, 2012.


We propose an analysis of cooperation for data sharing and the behavioral aspects involved in the process of decision making. Starting with the tethering capabilities of recent devices we apply game theoretical principles and models, inquire what makes the cooperation work, and what are the economical implications required to build a cooperative network. Aggregating the game theory with the results of the market inquiry of a questionnaire and with a developed android application, will give us an idea of why and how people share.
